Relics of the Sea will be on exhibition at North Shore Arts, Gloucester, MA from June 26- July 27, 2007. The work is a timely release by Boston fine artist, Melody Phaneuf. Phaneuf created the 32" x 24" oil painting to be both a decorative still life and an allegory of our inner self, of treasures we have yet to discover. Phaneuf is well known for symbolic analogies in her paintings. Evocative of a world of shipwrecks, treasure, and discovery, Relics of the Sea appeals to marine enthusiasts and collectors alike. "I wanted the painting to communicate on a mystical as well as a familiar level," says Phaneuf. "I chose subtle lighting and color which would give the painting a misty, mysterious essence. This sets the stage for a meditative, interior quality in which revelation can unfold." Melody Phaneuf has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2002.
The recent recovery of the Black Swan by Odyssey Marine Exploration unveiled riches swallowed up by the sea long ago. The saga is still unfolding as experts aim to discover the shipwreck's identity. "It's an exquisite synchronicity," states Phaneuf. "I love the ways that life reflects art."
Melody Phaneuf works at Boston's historic Fenway Studios. She has exhibited at the National Arts Club in New York, Galerie Herouet in Paris and with Art du Monde in Japan. Her work is regularly displayed at the Guild of Boston Artists, 162 Newbury Street, Boston, MA
